STAMI Seed Grants


The STAMI Seed Grant Program has been established to encourage and fund new collaborative research in topics of interest to the STAMI community. Funding of STAMI Seed Grants is specifically aimed at providing the scientific foundation to attract external support and activities. Funding calls will typically be once but not more than twice per year, depending on available funding. STAMI Faculty members will receive notification of Seed Grant announcements, which are also distributed to Departments having members of the STAMI community.



The proposal must include at least one principal investigator that is a member of STAMI. Georgia Tech faculty may sign up for membership to STAMI through at least one of our participating organizations: The Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics (COPE); The Community for Research on Active Surfaces and Interfaces (CRĀSI); The Georgia Tech Polymer Network (GTPN); and The Soft Matter Incubator (SMI). In any given STAMI Seed Grant cycle, more than one of STAMI’s participating organizations may issue seed grant calls; however, each Principal Investigator is limited to one (1) proposal as either a PI or co-PI per each STAMI call cycle. Proposal PI/s are thus strongly encouraged to choose the STAMI participating organization that most closely matches their proposed subject matter.
